Juventus vs AC Milan
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 6 April 2019
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin).
Juventus and Milan are set to take on each other in one of the most exciting games of the Matchday No 31 on Saturday evening at Allianz Stadium in Turin.
Teams will come into the clash in completely opposite spirits. The hosts have all but secured the new Scudetto title. They are 18 points clear at the top of the standings and we can say they do not have a true competitor in the top flight of Italian football.
Bianconeri eased past most rivals even without their star man Cristiano Ronaldo lately. They slipped up at Genoa (2-0), but regained the winning thread via two separate clean sheet wins over Empoli and Cagliari in last two rounds. They do not have an imperative whatsoever here even though they are going to play big opponents in the likes of Milan here.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men will think more of Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final leg against Ajax. However, they are still clear favourites ahead of this match-up based on Milan’s dreadful form in recent weeks.
Juventus vs AC Milan: Head-to-head
Milan were by no means a tricky opposition to Bianconeri in recent years.
Juventus won each of last seven encounters with Rossoneri conceding no more than one goal in past five head to head affairs.
The streak includes a narrow 1-0 victory in January’s Super Cup clash, as well as a 0-2 victory in the first half of the season at Stadio San Siro.
Juventus vs AC Milan: Prediction
Milan are not pulling up any trees coming into this derby with Juve. They took only one point in last three league rounds, a streak which dropped them down to fourth place in the league ladder. They are desperate for points aiming to secure the top-four finish and notch a place in the Champions League next season.
Nevertheless, we have reasons to expect Rossoneri to struggle in the final third here at Allianz Stadium. They scored only one goal in last two league ties against Sampdoria and Udinese. They notched only one goal in past five head to head meetings with Juve.
The home win to nil is our main betting recommendation here.
